Happiness Shared

Threre are so many new products in the new Stampin' Up! catalogue one of the new products I wanted was their tin of watercolour pencils!!!  I have to tell you they are fabulous, the colours are intense and blend easily together with a waterbrush.

I have used the new Happiness Shared stamp set, the fine detail of the stamp is so crisp, perfect for watercolouring!!  I have stamped the image in Basic grey ink and used a variety of different colours blending them with my water brush.  I have cut the image out and used diamensionals to give it some depth, adding a few single leaves with diamensionals. The greeting is stamped directly onto the Whisper White card, the base colour is Rose Red.

I think this set is excellent value for such fine detail and its available in wood mount or clear mount. I am planning to use it for some Christmas cards, as I think it looks similar to the Christmas Rose - perfect for a December birthday too!!  I must get those pencils back out!!!  So many ideas so little time!!!
